MAIDS

Maid

Anyone who has been watching Downton Abbey is going to be familiar with the term Maid! Formal Houses used to always have a Ladies Maid, a House Maid, a Kitchen Maid, and Nursery Maid – and even more.

Although in the UK we now consider the term ‘Maid’ to be rather old fashioned and not really in everyday use, families coming to the UK from overseas do still use this term as it can be a literal translation from what we call a Housekeeper.

So we do still get asked for a Maid – a Ladies Maid in particular being someone who will look after the Lady of House’s packing and unpacking, wardrobe management and the care of fine clothes – even though it is a role that is now carried out by Housekeepers who have had experience in more formal households.

T and C Staff are very happy to discuss the needs of your household, whether you live in the UK, are coming from overseas to live in the UK or would like staff to work in your homes overseas – and don’t be worried if you think you are using ‘Downton Abbey’ language – we are just here to help! Please call Andrea or Bibi on 020 3174 2446 or email  enquiries@tandcstaff.com.
